The hotel

Sat in the heart of the Big Five Country, the Protea Hotel by Marriott Nelspruit is just 63km from Kruger National Park, offering easy access for you to start your safari adventure, whilst also being a great location to explore the Lowveld – a region abundant with lush hills and valleys, and plenty of sunshine. Enjoy a round of golf nearby at Nelspruit golf club, a very aesthetically pleasing court, before you retire to the hotel swimming pool to cool off. The Fig Tree Restaurant and Bar is on hand to grab a drink and socialise on the patio, and to enjoy a delicious wholesome meal.
